Nicholas Young's parents died when he was very young. His father Simon Young died when Nicholas was only 6 years old.

He plied the trade of a stonemason for many years in Germany. The largest stone in the West Union Cemetery is one he made, dedicated to his four sons John, Andrew, Henry, and Simon. John and Andrew, his oldest sons, died on the same day in an accident when digging a new well when Andrew was overcome by fumes and John jumped down to save him. Henry died as a baby and Simon when he was about 9 years old. Nicholas saw much sorrow as a father due to the loss of these family members.
